Good People Brewing Company has been rated as one of the finest beer makers in southern United States. Amongst their ales sold year-round, the Snake Handler and IPA come highly recommended. Visitors can participate in a tour around the brewery and get enlightened on the brewing process.
Legend has it that Pale Eddie was a key figure in the abolition of an alcohol ban set by the state during the early 1900s. This Southern folk character lends his name to this pour house that is ripe with native hospitality and premium libations. Featuring an array of lagers, ales and bottled beer, as well as fine wine and spirits, it provides the neighborhood with a well-managed entertainment and drinking venue. It plays host to live bands and showcases a rotational selection of artwork by local and emerging talent. The exposed beams and bricks contribute to an industrial feel while restoring a rustic charm.
The J. Clyde is a gastropub located near the University of Alabama at Birmingham and is one of the area's most popular watering holes.

The Avondale Brewing Company has made it a mission to combine the quirky and fascinating history of Avondale with the art of brewing craft beer. All of the beers are named after important locations or events in the history of the area, like the Battle Field IPA or the Spring Street Saison. The brewery offers tours several times a week which include some Avondale Brewing swag, and a beer or four tasters and a pint glass or taster glasses in addition to the actual tour itself. The brewery also hosts special events and live music from time to time.
Right in the center of Avondale lies this comfortable and popular neighborhood bar. The Parkside Cafe is especially well-known for its pleasant outdoor patio, a great place to enjoy one of their tasty craft brews or stiff cocktail. Inside, the walls are packed with interesting and eclectic art, maybe with a live band or DJ playing in the background. Trivia nights are also particularly popular nights at the Parkside for those know-it-all's who like to put their useless knowledge to work!
